Christy, I'm so sorry to hear about your SIL. That is horrible to have a case of that severity. I wish I could help you more on the stem cell transplant questions. I'm in Canada. I have no idea what we have here in that case. I know that once the weekend is over, things will pick up here in the forum and you should get a good number of replies on this.
All the best,
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
